There is so much color and creativity here in Roatan!! We absolutely love walking around the island not only looking at the beautiful scenery but also looking at all of the beautiful buildings and architecture!
We want to thank everyone that has followed us through our blog. We hope it has been interesting and entertaining. We also want to thank everyone that has been praying for us and for all your encouraging words. God has really made this an amazing adventure. We cannot wait to continue the journey that God has for us when we return to Indiana. We hope to be blogging again in the future sharing what God is doing in Roatan, Honduras.
We had lunch today at GIO’s Restaurant with Pastor Tristan and his wife Nicole. We had a great time as we shared together. They gave us some real encouraging words. We discussed how we all felt like God had brought us together for a purpose, so we cannot wait to see what the future holds. Tristan plans to come to the states in the near future. We are hoping he can come and visit us in Indiana. After lunch, we drove to French Harbour to buy some reading glasses because Bev’s had broken. The store had a total of 4 pair. We purchased the one that came closest to the strength Bev needed, but they were pink! Across the street from where we were in French Harbour there were some very nice caged soccer fields so Bev had to stop and take a couple of pictures of that. Because we will be turning in the rental car tomorrow, on our way back to the house we stopped in Sandy Bay and had the car washed. When we got back to Casa Isabella, we sat on the end of the pier and watched our last sunset before heading home tomorrow.
We took Carlos and Chris out to lunch today. We drove to West End and ate at El Boske’s – the food court looking place. We had a great time. We just wanted to thank them for their hospitality and we hope to stay at their place on future trips. After we ate we drove to Coxen Hole to buy souvenirs (for the grandkids) then on our way back to West End we stopped to see the library and bookmobile in Sandy Bay. We finished our shopping (more stuff for grandkids) in West End before heading back to Casa Isabella. We both went out to the pier and watched the sunset. We only have one more sunset before we leave Saturday.
Today at 10:00 am we had our meeting with Andy Lopez of COPECO. It went great! In addition to Andy and the two of us there was a nurse, Ellen Rose Frazer, and a Dr. Adalberto Mejia who is the head of all the doctors on the Bay Islands. We discussed the strategies of bringing medical teams to the islands. They asked that we start with bringing 4 teams a year (one per quarter) and that each team would spend 3 days on Roatan and another 3 days on the island of Guanaja. With plans to send medical teams to both municipals of Roatan (east and west), Guanaja, and Utila in the future. (Roatan’s West municipal is called Roatan Municipality and East municipal is called Santos Guardiola Municipality.) Wow! God is good. Eventually we would be working with the government of Honduras on all the Bay Islands. We could never have dreamed this up!!
